A feature on the team's California experience.

West Virginia University's Solar Decathlon Team is in Irvine, competing with its rustic, log cabin home.

Team members say they are enjoying the experience, yet at the same time, feeling the pressure from competing.

Department of Energy officials say the home is bringing a refreshing new vision to the competition, too.
